Well, we could send the first round of invites out now (18:36 UK time), but it’s been a long day and we’d prefer to be awake and fresh when the first developers to access Locale get stuck in.
We’d anticipated going live at around midday today, but some last-minute RubyGem randomness happened instead.
So, sad as we are to miss our declared launch date by 12 hours, it’ll happen first thing in the morning.
If you don’t receive your invite then, rest assured it’ll arrive later this week. We want to see how the app and our servers perform in a controlled fashion rather than unleashing hell all of a sudden.
If you’re intrigued by Locale, the github documentation is up and the gem is there too – feel free to check it out and have a play.
